"xcode" is on the Tiger install DVD. It does not get loaded by default but you can find it on the disk.

You can also get "xcode" from apple.com. The one there is newer then the on on the DVD but either way software update will get you up to date.

"Xcode" is Apples development system and it includes the C, C++ and Objective C compilers which s really just gcc

Both "Fink" and "Mac Ports" have gcc also

Xcode is a point and click development system but you can also run gcc from the terminal. I mostly use the terminal.

MinGW is a port of the GNU tools to Windows.
